For you serves posts from accounts and Topics you follow as well as recommended posts. You’ll also see features that help you manage your For you timeline.
Accounts and Topics you follow
Your For you timeline displays a stream of posts from accounts you have chosen to follow on X. You may see suggested content powered by a variety of signals.
You can choose between your For you or Following timelines. For you shows posts based on recommendations of accounts you follow or topics you’re interested in. Your Following timeline displays posts from only the accounts you follow.
When you close X on the For you or Following tabs, you will return to whichever timeline you had open last.
You may also see content such as promoted posts or Reposts in your timeline.
About content you may see from outside your network
Additionally, when we identify a post, an account to follow, or other content that's popular or relevant, we may add it to your timeline. We select each post using a variety of signals, including how popular it is and how people in your network are interacting with it. We make recommendations to make it easier and faster to find content that contributes to the conversation in a meaningful way, such as content that is relevant, credible, and safe. This means you will sometimes see posts from accounts you don't follow. We recommend posts to you based on who you already follow and Topics you follow, and don’t recommend content that might be abusive or spammy. We share recommendations via push notifications, your Notifications tab, and by adding them to your For you timeline.
Sometimes, replies in a conversation are not shown in chronological order. We strive to show you the content that we think you’d be most interested in and contributes to the conversation in a meaningful way, such as content that is relevant, credible, and safe. When ranking a reply higher, we consider factors such as if the original post author has replied, if a reply is from someone you follow, or if the person is a X Blue subscriber.
Clicking or tapping the area where the post text appears in your timeline will take you to the post detail page, so you can see photos, videos, and other information related to that post.
Use the Bookmarks feature to save posts you’d like to refer to later. After opening a post on iOS to view post details, tap the Bookmark icon to save the post. On web and Android, tap or click the share icon and select Add post to Bookmarks. To view your saved posts, select Bookmarks in your navigation menu. To remove a saved Bookmark on iOS, simply tap the Bookmark icon . On web and Android, tap the share icon from the post within your bookmark timeline and select Remove post from bookmarks. Additionally, you can tap the more icon at the top of your bookmark timeline to remove all of your bookmarks at once.
You may see events featured at the top of your timeline labeled as Happening now. When available, we’ll show you events and topics we think you might be interested in when you open your X for iOS or Android app. Tap the icon to view why we think you'll be interested in the event, or to hide the event from your timeline. Tap the photo to view conversation surrounding the event.
How to switch between timelines
It's easy to see the posts you want to see. Click or swipe between tabs to see posts recommended “For you” or posts from the accounts you’re “Following". When you close X on the For you or Following tabs, you will return to whichever timeline you had open last.
